    That was yesterday Crankin, today is today Did you have an enjoyable evening?

    Yesterday:

    B: eggs scrambled with spinach over sweet potato hash, coffee
    1 hour solo workout that featured a deadlift personal record, followed by a metabolic "ladder"
    Protein shake
    L: bison chili over spinach, dried apricots
    D: bone broth "soup" with veggies, organic hot dog.

    Today (rest day)

    B: 1 boiled egg, 1 slice bacon, coffee
    L: (at church) 2 slices egg/cheese casserole
    S: 1/2 cup bison chili over spinach
    D: West African chicken stew over lemon/pine nut spinach. Debating on a beer, will probably have one double-chocolate stout to go along with 2 squares of 85% dark chocolate.

    I like this stew so much that I made a double batch. There is a variation of the recipe that uses white fish and while I am far from a fan of fish (outside of pan-fried sardines), I am going to HAVE to try it.

    I did have a great time, Catrin. We finally have a real gastropub here in the burbs and I don't feel so bad now. The plates for some of the stuff are small, so it's just a matter of choosing wisely. This place must have 25 beers on tap!
    Doing some experimenting with my diet this week, as DH is away. Leaning toward more vegetarian this week! I know I couldn't do it 100%, but this style of eating is easier for me than Paleo. Still like all of those Paleo recipes, though, and it has opened up a whole new bunch of them.
    B: cup of non fat plain Greek yogurt with blueberries, walnuts, dried cranberries. Slice of spelt raisin bread and walnut butter, coffee
    I ate half a Lara Bar at the beginning of my 6 mile nordic ski. Then I went home and shoveled up some of the snow that fell this morning before it ices up.
    L: cup of roasted red pepper/tomato soup, left over home made veggie burger with avocado, lettuce, salsa, sliced yellow pepper
    S: some roasted kale I bought at the store. Now I know that experiment I did with the kale last year really was OK. Ate some carrots while I was cooking
    Dinner will be lentil stew and a salad.
    I am planning on no wine or beer until at least Friday...

    Day 5

    Yes, and it is THE best recipe I've tried from her - and that is saying a lot! I would say the West African Stew is the one to start with in Well Fed 2 The lemon spinach is nice as well, a nice change to plain sauteed or wilted spinach. Going to try the Spicy Coconut Shrimp tonight from NomNom Paleo - another great cookbook I've come to love.

    You were right, Catrin. Hemp milk is bleh. I bought one of those small cartons of it and got everything ready to make a sort of smoothie early this morning. One sip and down the drain it all went. I wasted some good blueberries!
    I also woke up with stomach issues... ate half a Lara Bar and went to boot camp, though I had to leave once. Got home and felt kind of like I was having an allergic reaction (not the hemp!), as I felt weird all night. I ended up taking several meds, including some Pepto, so I could go to work. Thus, my eating has been comfort and carb loaded.
    B: head of stuffed endive with lox and light cream cheese, blackberries, coffee. This was not a good idea, but I was hungry and sick at the same time.
    L: almond butter sandwich on spelt raisin bread. I had to eat in my car today. The office is closed so I just drove from client to client. I also had about 30 oz. of water
    S: an apple, herbal tea
    D: scrambled eggs, toasted whole wheat bagel with lox (no cream cheese), an orange.
    I am exhausted.

    rest day
    B: egg whites with kale, one whole wheat bagel with butter and lox, blackberries, coffee. I had to have that bagel.
    L: one left over spiced chicken thigh, kale, bunch of grapes
    S: green tea, later I had a corn tortilla with hummus
    D: In my quest to try new vegetarian things, I had some sliced tempeh, sauted in olive oil with coconut amines, mushrooms, side of roasted broccoli, a sweet potato. 2 squares dark chocolate. The tempeh (I keep seeing Tempe, my former home) tasted nutty to me, not soy-like. I liked it.

    I didn't like Tempeh until I 1) found a local manufacturer and 2) started pre-steaming it. Before that, it was always bitter to me. Now, it has this lovely, wholesome, nutty flavor. I love it!
